This is somewhat amazing for me... I forgot to turn OSS off during a static shooting session on tripod with the Sony 18-200mm, and never noticed any problem (with over 150 pictures). Since then, I just don't turn OSS off and can guarantee I never encountered even a single problem with stabilisation playing tricks.

If this is luck, then I must admit to be very lucky indeed !

That's interesting. I did a test with the original Sony 18-200 and came to the same conclusion. I photographed the top of a church tower several times at a range of exposures at 200mm using a heavy tripod and OSS on. I repeated the tests with OSS off. I could see no difference during careful comparison of all images at 100%. I still turn it off when using a tripod, but I don't worry about it too much if I forget or don't have time to turn it off.
